WINNIPEG - It was only one game, and a preseason game at that, but the trio of Mathieu Perreault, Jack Roslovic, and Kristian Vesalainen earned themselves another look.
"I like that we can have two guys playing with Matty Perreault can learn from him," said head coach Paul Maurice, citing how Mark Scheifele and Kyle Connor continue to learn from Blake Wheeler.
"Matty plays at the right level. Both of those other two guys being so young, we're always saying 'on the puck, play harder at a higher pace, at a higher rate.' So they have a really good veteran guy that does that. He's not the biggest guy in the league, but he plays as hard as the biggest guy."
